He's a teacher and longtime supporter of schools--but he says 'no' to Perham levy hike
It is a dilemma for him, but retired teacher Roger Vettleson will be voting 'no' on the levy referendum for the Perham-Dent schools. For Vettleson, who taught in the Moorhead school system and retired to the Perham area, his property taxes will rise $800 a year if the levy passes--this...

Letter: There's no place for politics on the pulpit
They'll probably be found wrong as a matter of law. Let's hope so, anyway. But the pastors who deliberately broke tax laws Sunday are even more wrong as a matter of policy. Those pastors likely despise Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the infamous atheist whose challenge pushed the U.S. Supreme...

Other Opinions: 'No Child Left Behind' needs to be eliminated
In theory, No Child Left Behind seemed like a great idea: hold schools accountable for students' success and set high expectations for outcomes. In reality, NCLB is a disaster. The federal legislation, signed into law in 2002, sets unrealistic goals and unfunded mandates for di...
